Read full description of the books Young Thomas Edison:This book talks about the early years of Thomas Edison's life. At a young age Thomas contracted scarlet fever and lost most of his hearing. After that schools weren't good for him because the teachers treated him badly. His mother homeschooled him and encouraged him to invent. He work as a telegraph operator all over the country and began creating major inventions during his early teen years. He invented the telephone, phonograph, motion picture, the light bulb, and much more!
I liked this story because it is non-fiction that tells a story that is interesting to read. The pictures that go along with he book are black and white and fit in very well with the time period of the story.
I think that this book would be great in a classroom library because teachers could talk about inventions and the history behind how we have things today that someone, long ago, invented. The kids could maybe write about an invention that they might create one day. It would be a great way to get them to use their imagination!
